KALAMAZOO, Mich, January 07, 2008 – Fabri-Kal, a leading provider of disposable foodservice packaging, has announced the availability of its re-designed line of Nexclear® contact-clear polypropylene plastic drink cups. One lid now fits the five most commonly used sizes of drink cups, which include 9, 12, 16, 20 and 24 ounce capacity, eliminating foodservice operators’ need for multiple lids. Fabri-Kal is the first North American manufacturer to offer this unique cup and lid system for plastic drink cups.
Nexclear cups are recyclable where facilities exist, shatter-resistant and feature large embossed numbers on their base for easy operator and customer product identification. Lightweight Nexclear cups provide an economical alternative to traditional clear cups while providing hot application use.
The lids that fit Nexclear cups are made from clear APET plastic, the same recyclable material used in water and soda bottles. Flat, straw-slotted and dome style lids are available for multiple merchandising options. Each lid snaps securely onto the cup’s smooth rolled rim to provide a safe and comfortable drinking experience.
Nexclear cups are custom printable in up to five colors and feature a large, uninterrupted labeling space for branding opportunities. The cups are also embossed with capacity marks for practical fill identification. The complete Nexclear line includes 7 and 10 ounce cups that fit a second common lid.
